    I have that record player. It comes with an auxiliary chord, so you just need to find a good set of speakers in your price range. I hate my current set up, so I don't have a good suggestion

    Ive got the oversized Bose sound dock not in use. It has AUX so I'll start with that.

    Just ordered the player and my first three records. Goodbye money

    I just spent $80 on the Dead RSD release today without giving it a second thought. Meanwhile, there are 1000's of excellent quality shows for free on the archive. This is not a rational thing.

    But I love it!

    They were. Son Volt is "Live from the Bottom Line, Feb 12,1996." Mostly songs from The Trace, with some covers mixed in.

    Big Star is "Live at the Univ. of Mizzou, 4/25/93."

    My oldest daughter went to this. It's funny to me how she loves vinyl. When she told me she was going to this I thought it was code for weed drugs with her aunt.

    Thanks for keeping me hip and with it TMB

    i dont know if prog rock has the best art, but it's likely to be cool or bizarre, like that armadillo tank thing up there. the interior art on that album shows it being born from a volcano iirc

    i'm sure the psychedelic bands and others have cool stuff too

    Can't stress this enough. Buy used.

    This would be a good starter rig:

    Turntable: pioneer pl 12d
    Cartridge: Denon DL 110, Denon DL 160, or audio technica at440mla (replace stylus if you buy this used)
    Receiver: any Harman Kardon twin power (430, 730, 930, etc.) OR NAD 3020
    Speakers: whatever start with those Pioneer Andrew Jones bookshelves and audition until you find something you really like. Most subjective piece along with cartridge.

    Vinyl can sound great, but, it can also sound way shittier than any digital format. Buy gear good enough to see what it's all about if you have interest. A lot of the cheap stuff will play LPs but will not do the format justice.

    This makes me sad for parents' record collection. They had a lot of vinyl from the late 60s and early 70s that just got lost in time somewhere. Cream, Dylan, the Woodstock collection, classic old country, etc. I was like the kid in Almost Famous listening to that stuff when I was in middle school.

    Great thread idea. I picked up an original release Sgt Pepper and Allman Bros live at filmore east last week. Both gently used jackets but sound great.

    Figuring out the cartridge along with installing it properly is the hardest part, IMO.

    Just start listening, and you'll start picking out the flaws / figuring out what you like & don't like. But don't stress over it - it'll sound good for the most part.
